Anthony Weiner has ditched Carlos Danger and T-Dog for yet another alias: federal inmate 79112-054.

Weiner, 53, reported Monday to Federal Medical Center Devens to begin serving a 21-month term for sexting with a teen girl, the Bureau of Prisons confirmed.

Devens is one of only nine federal prisons that offers sex offender treatment and is the facility closest to New York.

Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, 41, has filed for divorce. The two have a 5-year-old son. She didn’t accompany Weiner on his road trip to Devens. Abedin was spotted in New York with their young son. In 2015, Weiner notoriously sexted a picture of his bulging underwear — while his son slept next to him.

His sexting habit derailed his career as a congressman, as well as his bid for mayor of New York — before it landed him in prison for swapping messages with a 15-year-old girl.

Weiner repeatedly encouraged the girl, who made plain she was underage, to get naked and fondle herself while he watched via Skype, court papers show.

Weiner, once a rising star in the Democratic Party and a City Hall hopeful, sobbed at his sentencing, telling Judge Denise Cote: “I was a very sick man for a very long time.”

He wore his wedding band at the proceeding, but he will likely be unable to take the ring with him to prison.

Devens’ policy says inmates can only wear plain wedding bands valued at less than $100.
